From Muscat: Private Desert Safari and Overnight

1. From Muscat: Private Desert Safari and Overnight

This overnight desert safari will help to expand your understanding of Omani heritage with a stay under the star-lit sky at a campsite in the desert. Take this unique opportunity to step back in time and experience Oman as it was five decades ago.  Begin your journey in Muscat and head towards Wadi Bani Khalid, where you will stop for a refreshing bath in the deep pools, and explore the hidden Mukal cave. Relax under the sun and enjoy a nice breeze from the mountains. Tuck into a tasty lunch, and then continue on to Bidiya village. Visit a Bedouin family in the desert. After spending some time with the family and enjoying Omani coffee and dates, arrive at the desert camp. In the evening drive in the desert to watch the sunset from the dunes and take amazing photographs.

Oman: Jasmin Tour | 3 Days Private Package Tour

2. Oman: Jasmin Tour | 3 Days Private Package Tour

First, you'll explore the desert town of Fanya, and admire the ancient mud buildings amid a mountainous backdrop. Continue to the Old Town Mudhairib. The ruins here offer a wonderful photo opportunity. In bustling Ibra, you will stroll the local market and enjoy a midday repast before visiting its ancient village. A romantic night in a desert camp will rejuvenate you after an adventurous 4x4 sand dune drive, topped off by a stunning sunset over desert dunes and followed by a sumptuous dinner surrounded by the warmth of a campfire. On day 2, explore Wadi Bani Khalid, one of the biggest and most beautiful wadis in Oman. Swim, sunbathe, relax, or have a picnic in the scenic wadi canyons. Tour the sights of Sur, including a famous castle, and visit the Turtle sanctuary at Ras Al Jinz. Look for nesting sea turtles and, if you are lucky, baby turtles hatching. Proceed to the overnight hotel/camp in Ras al Hadd. The next day, after a photo stop at the The Tomb of Bibi Mariam (onetime host to Marco Polo) in Qalhat, you'll continue to Wadi Shab. This is an enormous canyon where you'll hike and bathe in the crystal clear pools, crevices, and even a stunning turquoise waterfall. On the way back to Muscat, see the incredible Bamah Sinkhole, believed to have been created by a meteor.

Our guide Ilya gave us 2 unforgettable days. He speaks good English, is very knowledgeable about the area and gave us a lot of good information about Oman as well as important background information. You drive in an air-conditioned, beautiful four-wheel drive jeep, pick-up directly from the hotel. ( Tour approx. 400 km ) He always responded quickly to inquiries of any kind. The tour points: - Visit to the Amouage perfume factory with a guide - Wadi Bani Khalid, a wonderful oasis for bathing - Typical lunch in a small town on the way to the desert - Off-road jeep drive into the Wahiba Sands desert to the Desert Nights Camp - exciting drive with the jeep on the sand dunes (high and windy) a unique experience at sunset - overnight stay in a very modern, tent-like bungalow - excellent evening buffet and breakfast buffet - exciting quad ride through the desert - return trip with a visit to a Bedouin tent The excursion is absolutely worth the money thanks Ilya .

Magnificent getaway, with a well-prepared route but with enough flexibility from our guide to get off the beaten track. Enriching experience, and welcoming, available and passionate guide.

We booked this private trip with friends. Youssef was our guide. We couldn't have wished for a better one. Through him we got to know all facets of his country and its people.

Juma made this the trip of a lifetime for my family. We are looking forward to coming back to Oman and seeing him again. This tour is highly recommended and I hope you get Juma!
